Eloquent gathering…

Gathering my thoughts
which are a lot, (or not)
I part ways with misery,
writing with it as my ink;
ain’t as shallow as I think.

Gathering joyous words,
which are a lot, (indeed)
I write from hollow mind,
the echo of trapped voice;
muse, then does rejoice.

Together, they form me,
my muse’s life, (they do)
And with a silent flourish,
they eloquently nourish;
freeing me of my burden.

November PAD Challenge Day 24. #novpad24

The month of November sees the Poem-a-Day (PAD) challenge, hosted by Robert Lee Brewer at Poetic Asides. Day 24 asks to write a “gathering” poem. I write on the gathering of thoughts and words, this being my 100th post since my return to Blogspot.

3WW #267

Thom G hosts Three Word Wednesday, a site that gives three words around which we can base our poetry or prose.. He offers Misery, Shallow and Hollow as the words for the 267th edition.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
